THIS elegant dish has been in my family since I was a little girl and when presented to guests, brings rave reviews. It was created by my Dad, who still enjoys experimenting in the kitchen. Sometimes I prepare it the day before and warm it up while I'm cooking the rice.

"I love the flavors of this recipe! I usually leave out the celery and pepper and just put in extra pineapple and onion. Sometimes I'll mix in a little cornstarch too to make it thicker. It's just as good without rice as well."
